Testimonials

Meskimen is a very talented impressionist, but what’s most impressive is that he not only imitates obligatory celebrities like Arnold Schwarzenegger, George W. Bush, Jack Nicholson and Jimmy Stewart but also people like George Clooney, Paul Giamatti and Ricky Gervais - celebrities you wouldn’t think were ripe for impressions until you hear his takes on them.

–New York Times Magazine

World’s greatest celebrity impressionist.

–The Today Show, Australia

Fifty-eight lines of dramatic Shakespearean text, delivered in 24 famous celebrity voices, expertly imitated in four minutes of YouTube footage by one side-splitting, hyper-observant celebrity impersonator. You could take the time to crunch the numbers, but we’d recommend that you just hit “Play” and be amazed instead.

–Entertainment Weekly.com

In under four minutes, Meskimen’s final tally is 25 different voices. He seems to effortlessly cover a ton of ground, from Ricky Gervais to George W. Bush to Morgan Freeman. We’re sure it took enormous studying and practice, but Jim doesn’t break a sweat at all in this performance.
